Scream Queen is a cheap little slasher directed by rookie director Eric Orloff (Jarrod Robbins), but written by and starring yesteryear's scream queen supreme Malicia Tombs (Linnea Quigley) ... and she makes everybody's life a hell on set, and not only that, eventually she just storms off the set for good without having finished her scenes - to die in a car explosion that has written murder all over it ...

A few months later, Eric, the effects guy Squib (Bryan Cooper) and the key cast of Scream Queen (Nicole West, Josh Matthews, Nova Sheppard, Emilie Jo Tisdale) are invited to a mansion - by no one else but thought-dead Malicia, who tells them she wants to finish the movie and offers everyone a very decent salary too. One catch, they mustn't leave the mansion during the shoot. Thing is, she also suspects that someone of the present company has actually blown up her car in an attempt to murder her, so she might be a bit on the vengeful side, but since everybody's life has hit rock bottom since the original shoot, they all agree to finish the film. Also, Malicia has written the screenplay in a rather macabre way where everybody goes under one's real name, and everybody's slaughtered in a rather gruesome way by a masked killer. And that said, there's actually a masked killer loose in the mansion, who kills everyone according to script ...


Scream Queen is a film of the classic shot-on-video era, so don't expect perfection as the film suffers from a lot of this filmmaking technique, including rather flat imagery and less-than-perfect sound quality. But what the film lacks on a technical level due to technical restrictions it sure makes up in story and sheer effort. Basically the film's a slasher, but more so than many other films of its ilk it harks back to the roots of the genre, from giallo elements to a classic old dark house setting, and within the film's limitations director Brad Sykes tries to re-create a gothic feel to things. And elements of (self-)irony certainly don't hurt either. So in all, no, not a perfect film let alone a masterpiece, but for a shot-on-video flick this is actually pretty cool, and furthermore it's just so much fun as a whole.
